    Interview

    The hiring and interview process went well. The hiring manager was very polite. The hiring manager and I met and there was a few questions and an explanation of the process. I was introduced to some of the responsibilities and asked about how I would handle certain situations and what sort of ideas I had to answer some types of issues.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Virginia (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and didn't hear back until a few weeks later. First was a simple screening call over the phone with the recruiter. Next week, a second call with someone in the department who held a similar position. This was more in depth and had standard interview questions. Around a week and a half later I had an on grounds set of interviews (2 panels, 2 one-on-ones) that lasted 3 hours. The next week I had a video conference interview with 2 directors that hasn't been present the other day. The very next day I was told they would be charging references. The next week I got an offer. Though the initial screening process can be slow, it felt thorough and made me feel the University makes the effort to achieve the best possible fit between candidate and position.
